(Newser) – Michele Bachmann has a news flash for all of us: Gays already have marriage equality. As she explained to a high school student at a town hall meeting this week, "They can get married ... they can marry a man, if they're a woman, or they can marry a woman, if they're a man. ... Every American citizen has the right to avail themselves of marriage, but they have to follow what the laws are. And the laws are you marry a person of the opposite sex," she explained, to cheers.

"There are no special rights for people based upon your sex practices," Bachmann added. Writing for Daily Intel, Dan Amira takes issue with that last line: "Actually, there are" special rights, he writes. "Straight people have the right to marry people they love, and gay people don't."

The "gay movement" is really a motive of a small tribe and a part of the loony, glib liberal extreme left: "We, as communists, used to debate people about the existence of God and after a while, I came to the conclusion that this was a waste of time. You aren’t going to debate people away from the existence of God. But what we found was that if you get people involved in deviant sexual behavior, the whole idea of God just disappears automatically." — Wilhelm Reich, jewish communist, pedophile and psychiatrist in Austria (1933)
